The convenience decision was a good one. I found myself standing outside the door of the gym with pool at 8am Sunday waiting for it to open so I could get in a quick swim before church. Wouldn't have been able to do that at the aquatic center. 900yds accomplished!
On Saturday, one of my tiny runner friends who lives close to me, mentioned that she wants to start cycling again. After church, I gave her a call to see how serious she was about it. To my delight, she was willing to meet up for a 15 mile loop. Adding on the miles to/from our meeting spot, I got in a total of 19.6 miles. And she's interested in doing it again next weekend. Sweet!
I came home all pumped up and spent some time working on my 2009 fitness goals. Then I signed up Husband & I for the Jingle Bell 5K that's less that 3 weeks away. Hopefully I'm running by then, if not, I guess that will be the day that I start. Heheheh.
This morning, my shoulders are a bit sore from swimming. My left hamstring feels tight and needs to be stretched. And my uh...um...hmmm well let's just say it's been awhile since I've spent that much time on the saddle. But most importantly, my knee feels fine. Woot!
After a month of knee-induced slothfulness, I feel like I'm almost back. How cool is that?!?!?
